MARTYN ROBINSON SAYS
The spider in your photo appears to be an unusually marked net-casting spider (Deinopis subrufa). These harmless spiders are so named because they don’t build a standard web but instead make a small blue-white net that they drop over insects that come close. The species has a variable pattern but this one is more atypical than most. Net-casting spiders have good eyesight, which is unusual in most spiders.
They have two big eyes on the front of their face, which explains another common name, ogre-faced spider.
